The Serbian Heritage Museum of Windsor is a non-profit organization and is established with the purpose of collecting, preserving, researching, exhibiting and interpreting a collection of artifacts and archival material related to Serbian history and culture.

Serbian Heritage Museum

The Museum is open to the public, and serves the people of Windsor and Essex County by imparting knowledge through multiple perspectives on Serbian culture, tradition, history, and customs. The Museum achieves this through its emphasis on exhibits, publications, research, and educational programs, including lectures, films, plays, and concerts, that highlight the richness of Serbian culture and ideas.

Serbian Heritage Museum of Windsor is the only such museum in Canada and is dedicated to upholding its mandate of multiculturalism in Canada by preserving, celebrating and promoting the experience and contribution of Serbian heritage in the lives and communities of Canadians.

The museum’s aim is to preserve the knowledge of Serbian immigrants to Ontario and Canada, and to promote the great contribution made by Serbs to Canada’s industrial, cultural, social and intellectual life. The Serbian Heritage Museum is a focus of local, national and international collaboration in programs and research that are accessible to individuals and organizations.
